To find the mass of a component, you must go into the iProperties, click on the Physical tab, click Update if it’s required, and then search for the box with Mass. The “Mass In Lbs” app does all of this for you and displays the results on the right click menu.
Do you need to copy the mass for use in a spreadsheet, shipping weight, or email? The “Mass In Lbs” app allows you to copy the mass directly to the clipboard so you can use it wherever you want.
Do you ever need to find the combined mass of just a few components in an assembly or maybe an assembly and another part? With standard Autodesk® Inventor® functionality, you would have to go through the steps of finding the mass of each individual component and then manually sum up the values. The “Mass In Lbs” app allows the user to multi-select parts & assemblies, etc. and displays the mass sum in the right click menu. The copy to clipboard functionality also works with multi-select.
